It is not always easy to know what to pack when planning a trip to the Himalayas. Ladakh is blessed with pleasant temperatures, far from the heat of Rajasthan. During the day, expect temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees, but be prepared for once the sun sets, as it can get really cold and it will remind you of how high up in the mountains you actually are. Parallels and Meridians offers you an ideal suit case for a stay in Ladakh, whether you go by car or by trekking, do not miss the essentials.
We recommend light cotton or linen outfits for pants and short-sleeved T-shirts. For the evening, do not forget a fleece or a relatively warm jacket and a scarf, which you will appreciate. Good shoes and socks so you can wander wherever you want and climb the steps of monasteries without hurting yourself with blisters.
Do not forget a good pair of sunglasses and sunscreen, it is essential for when you are out exploring during the day or while trekking.
If, however, you decide to discover this marvel of India on foot, you will of course have porters and drinking water at your disposal. But we still recommend a small practical backpack to carry your camera, a water bottle and the little accessories that you like to wear.
You are ready for an exceptional discovery of the Indian Himalayas in all its serenity. Have a good trip!
